I was searching on Google Maps and I found Davis Enterprises' winter quarters. I saw it in satellite mode and I counted two racked Sky Wheels, two Sky Divers, three Zippers one of them being an original, two Zyklon coasters - one is assembled and the other is in pieces.

Skywheel, Zyklon Coaster, and a year or so ago a Bayern Curve.

Why don't we see any of these rides at the CA Mid State Fair?

Does the show only use them at the LA street and church fairs?

Two Toboggans.

At least three tilts.

Looks like a history of carnival rides.

The Chance Giant Wheel looks like they were in the process of painting it as some of the towers are green, some white.

Very cool.

If you look carefully, you can find an original Zipper and there were no tubs on her so I'm guessing she's being refurbished. I saw another Zipper parked inside their shed.

Four Zippers (one stripped, one in the barn) - two Skydivers, what looks like a tub load trailer from a Flying Bobs - there's a Go-Gator there -- a Sizzler, 3 Hampton/San Antone kid rides...

Wonder if that old hydraulic Zipper is still there -- problem with satellite images is they're 'dated' and not usually current... I might have a buyer for the old Zipper frame if it was for sale (depending on what parts were still with it)...

One has to wonder, what other treasures are sitting in the garage. I've driven down this street (Sierra) many times, and you would never know it's there. Actually there's a few WQ's around Rialto and Fontana. Nice find.

Have you ever checked RCS's WQ? Nice yard.

Helm & Sons WQ. Colton, CA

It appears as if there's two different shows because of the fence lines. But I think it's all one.

Shamrock Shows has their WQ in Fontana as well. I've driven past Helm's many times. Maybe if I go back to Colton this Christmas I can get some photos to share with everyone. Everytime I drive by there I always see they have their Giant Wheel up.

I'll be going to the Ramona Country Fair as well and Christiansen's WQ is also near the fair so I might catch a couple of shots there too.

The satellite image Google has now is much better than the previous one. The old photo looked like it was shot during the winter. Not very clear. If you zoom out, you can see an empty yard. Then zoom closer the yard is full. That's pretty cool.

ive all ways liked rcs they seem very organized.I mean look at their lots.Their organized and all set up neat its interesting to see that their wq is the same.You see the trucks also have parking space lines on the whole lot.I also forgot that they did get new tarps and those are the old.what i was use to when i saw them and helped them out.....Still love rcs but wades and powers stole my love.
